p.s. This video doesn’t qualify as porn, by any stretch, but my YouTube account was deleted for posting similar videos in the past. This is why I don’t support activists who want to put “porn” behind a pay wall. Who gets to decide what is porn? If I were a woman doing the same thing in short-shorts, it might be considered provocative, but would anybody call it obscene? There are too many double standards and prudes out there who would censor everything that made them uncomfortable. There are producers who think if people were forced to pay for all porn, then the producers would make more money. I’m not sure if that is true, but considering the censorship on YouTube and Instagram, I think we’d find ourselves paying for a lot more than legitimate porn.
And finally, any producer should be allowed to give away their work if they want to. Just because there are producers who can’t make money with their current business model, doesn’t mean we should force everyone to charge for their “adult” content. We don’t force everyone to buy a newspaper because newspapers are struggling to make a profit. The world is changing, and businesses that used to be profitable are no longer profitable. If anyone thinks a pay-for-porn law is a good idea, they should review the U.K.’s recent [failed] attempt at age verification for viewing porn. It’s a lot more complicated than some people would have you believe. …and it’s a bad idea, in my opinion.
